Rocco, my older brother.
Rocco suddenly and very unexpectedly passed away June 11th at home. Mom had no idea he was even sick. He hid it from her to make it "easier" on her heart. When she rushed him to the vet, they found he had a mass that had ruptured, causing internal bleeding. Without doing a biopsy they were 90% sure it was cancer. With the vets okay, mom brought him home. She knew deep down with the look in his eye this was right thing to do. And he peaceful passed with mom by his side.
This is the reason why I'm going raw. Mom always thought she fed us good kibble, but her gut is telling her otherwise.
Rocco and her had an incredible bond. Volunteering at spay/neuter clinic in Exuma, Bahamas, she found Rooco. Rescued him and his siblings. Together they fostered close to 20 potcakes and local dogs. His memory will live on through The Rocco Spay/Neuter Fund. Donations will go towards the spay/neuter of island dogs.Just as mom and Rocco found each other. Thank you to Niagarahearts potcakes for honouring him this way. Link in profile
